Have you noticed that the back end of a bunny is used in many food and craft creations?

    I think the concept is cute.bunnybum

    The bunny is running away . . . and when you look at the elements involved . . . quite easy to make.

    Yes, it’s easier with a template or with various punches, but you can make circles and ovals and an interesting scalloped or starburst type of edge on a circle for the tail. Or use a cotton ball.

    From the image on the right, you can plainly see what it takes to have a bunny going into a rabbit hole. Just circles and ovals. These you can cut out with a punch or with scissors.

    Knowing the basic concept allows you to make bunnies in different sizes using different mediums. Now see how easy it would be to make pancakes bunny bums for Easter breakfast. Or have this concept on cupcakes . . . and, of course, paper crafts . . . a box or card . . .

    It’s all getting down to the basic parts that make up the image you want to create . . . and you don’t have to be an artist to do it. Many people use whatever they have around the house . . . a can for the circle . . . or a piece of jewelry . . . you have circles and ovals . . . you don’t have to go out and buy anything . . . and you may be able to find things online.

    There is a great sense of accomplishment when you discover you can make it yourself.

    Yes, there will be a bit of trial and error, but you’ll be able to get these designs done . . . and for the little toes, just use a marker or colored pencil . . . or frosting . . . depending upon what you’re making. Cutting those out would be a bit too much.

    I know we do think of what would be easier . . . and yes, punches are great as are templates . . . but when you get into crafts as a business or it’s something you do all the time, you’ll find ways of making what you need.
